Sylvia Dore to Teach the Process of

Fermenting ‘Fermenting Vegetables’ class - 5:30-7 p.m., Thursday at NourishMe in Ketchum



ine wines from North and South America will be highlighted Saturday night as the Crisis Hotline celebrates “Wine of the Americas” at its sixth annual Spring Winetasting/Silent Auction. The event will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at the Sawtooth Botanical Gardens, a few miles south of Ketchum at Highway 75 and Gimlet Road. Tickets are $25, available at the door or by calling the Crisis Hotline at 208-788-0735. “We’re raising the bar a little,” said Robin Tomasi, the Crisis Hotline’s development director. “In the past, we’ve spotlighted Idaho wines, which are good. But this year TasteVin Wines has selected wines from Chile, Argentina and Washington State to go with appetizers from Cristina’s, Il Naso, Globus, J&T Catering, Perry’s, Atkinsons’ Market, Zou 75, Vintage, Boca and Ketchum Grill. And the Sawtooth Brewery will provide beer samples.” Cristina’s, for instance, will provide a focaccia sandwich, an artichoke dip with flatbread and a salmon platter; Zou 75 will provide beans with spicy aioli sushi rolls. And Rodrigo Herrera, the new owner of Vintage, will be cooking on the spot. Silent auction items include golf packages from Sun Valley, Bigwood and The Valley Club; jewelry from Christopher & Co.; a yurt trip, Nordic ski pass, rafting trip, fine art and gift certificates from The Elephant’s Perch and other shops. Pianist Michael White will provide background music. The hotline is staffed 24/7 365 days a year, fielding calls concerning depression and other issues Valley residents are grappling with. It also offers referrals to non-profits in the Valley. The hotline fields a lot of calls from teens, Tomasi said. “We visit the schools and counsel the kids about the warning signs of suicide—teens are among the most demographically susceptible population groups to suicide. We also advise them about what to do in a drug- or alcohol-based emergency. Next year we’ll focus on things like bullying and what to do if you see friends using meth as part of a module in the school curriculum.” Hotline staff are also offering a new course to first responders, including firefighters and ski patrolmen, about how to deal with trauma. “It’s not just about taking vital signs,” said Tomasi. “There’s a psychology component that needs to be addressed, such as how to talk to the family of the trauma victim.” A volunteer course will be open to the public next fall. tws



o the untrained eye, the bubbling green-yellow mixture of fermenting Daikon radish sitting in a jar on the counter of NourishMe might look like food gone bad, food that’s spoiled. But Sylvie Dore sees a jar that’s bubbling with healthful benefits. “Eating one big tablespoon of sauerkraut, fermented carrots or fermented radishes is the same as eating a large bowl of salad,” she said. “It provides good bacteria, which helps us digest food and assimilate nutrients. It also helps strength our immune system.” Dore can scarcely make enough fermented foods each week to meet demand at Ketchum’s NourishMe store, as more and more consumers learn of the benefits of fermented foods. She’s even teaching a class on fermenting vegetables from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Thursday at NourishMe. Students will get to taste 10 varieties of fermented vegetables, including curry, pizza and pickled Daikon. They will also get a jar of sauerkraut to take home. (Call 408-859-7383 to register). Fermented foods used to occupy a regular place on Americans’ plates. But they began to disappear as food manufacturers began making pickles and sauerkraut with vinegar; pasteurizing cheese, which killed off good bacteria; and making breads with commercial yeast instead of the time-honored sourdough starter. In the process, Americans have lost something that helps improve digestion, helping the body better absorb nutrients. They’ve lost out on enzymes that offer better health and foods that restore good bacteria in guts that have been ravaged by lactose intolerance, gluten intolerance, irritable bowel syndrome and other problems, said Julie Johnson, a nutritionist and owner of NourishMe. Raw vegetables can be difficult to digest and overcooked food can lose nutrients, Johnson said. But fermented foods are easy to digest. “They help the micro and macronutrients enter our bloodstream and they help break them down on a cellular level so they can enter cells,” she added. “And, of course, we add other beneficial things to our fermented foods. Ginger, for instance, has a lovely effect on the blood. Garlic helps thin blood—it’s antibacterial. It’s


The Spring Wine Tasting and Auction will help fund the Crisis Hotline, which provides help to those considering suicide and dealing with other emotional crises.

“It’s the right way to eat for a lot of reasons.” One bite of these fermented ginger carrots is equivalent to eating a whole bunch of carrots, says Sylvie Dore.

the right way to eat for a lot of reasons.” Dore began eating fermented foods when she became pregnant. Now, eight years later, she tries to eat two tablespoons a day. “Someone gave me a cookbook titled ‘Nourishing Traditions,’ by Sally Fallon. I read it and was sold. It’s traditional knowledge that humans have made use of over hundreds of years and thrown away just in the last 50 years,” she said. “People used to eat fermented foods all the time before refrigeration. They’d harvest their vegetables in the fall, cut them up, ferment them and they’d last all winter. It’s a form of preserving. We changed our diet to white flour and other refined foods, forgetting all the wisdom of the past, and we began seeing diseases increase.” Fermenting foods is easy to do. In fact, it’s a good way to use up excess garden veggies. Fermented foods keep for months, while fresh produce spoils in a

couple weeks. Dore chops vegetables, including cabbage, carrots and Daikon radish. Then she lightly salts them to draw out the liquid. She adds whey, a byproduct of raw milk, to help it ferment quicker. Then she submerges the vegetables under their own liquid, forcing out air bubbles. It’s important to get the liquid over the chopped veggies, she says, because good bacteria doesn’t like oxygen. When done, Dore lines NourishMe’s shelves with such choices as German sauerkraut made with caraway seed, salt and whey; Asian kraut, featuring cabbage, kale, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, tamari, whey and salt; a carrot-ginger mix; curry kraut; and kimchi made of cabbage, carrots, Daikon radishes, ginger, garlic, chili, sea salt and whey. Cabbage is popular to ferment because of all it brings to the table. But you can

5B Bikeshare Program


he light rain wasn’t conducive to a Bikeshare Launch Party. But that didn’t stop an earnest group of pedal-power supporters from partying under a few tents pitched around the Farmers Market lot in Hailey Monday night as they checked out the city’s new Bikeshare bikes. The city secured 18 cruisers sporting sturdy, if small, baskets through a Climate Change Environmental Protection Agency grant that will be locked at several bike racks throughout Hailey. The bikes may be accessed through a monthly membership of $10, a seasonal membership of $30 or an hourly use rate of $1. Members can put their pin number in, wait a few minutes for the bikes to okay it via satellite, unlock the bikes and ride away. Officials can track the bikes through GPS technology

The program is the first ride share program in Idaho, said Jason Miller, the director of Mountain Rides. “We’re also calling it the world’s smallest bike share program,” he said, reiterating how larger cities like San Francisco have several hundred bikes at their disposal. Hailey Mayor Fritz Haemmerle said he grew up in the days when bicycles were considered children’s toys—you never saw adults riding bikes. Now, he said, it’s the cool thing to do among both adults and kids. The first few months will be a learning experience as officials see how bikers use the bikes, Miller said. “The whole point is to reduce your carbon footprint,” said Kaz Thea, who will manage the program. “So, get out of the car and use a bike.” For information, go to tws

ealthy snacks are a great way for people of all ages to meet their daily nutrient needs. Planned snacks promote good health and add pleasure to life. Make room for snacks and create a snack plan: When shopping, buy individual containers of yogurt, canned fruit, tuna packed in water, pudding, low-fat milk, juice boxes (100 percent juice), and water. When putting away groceries, take time to wash fresh fruit and vegetables. Store them by low-fat yogurt and dips in the refrigerator, so they will be ready to grab for quick snacks. Put snacks on lower shelves, so children can serve themselves. Hang a snack list on the refrigerator, so everyone can see what is available. Here are a few 5-minute snack ideas to try: • Baby carrots, broccoli or cauliflower and low-fat dip • Whole-grain crackers and peanut butter • String cheese and an apple • Grapes and a bagel with peanut butter • Pretzels and raisins • Nuts and orange slices • Whole-grain cereal and a banana • Banana and a fig bar • Cheese cubes and apple or pear slices • Grape tomatoes and whole-grain crackers • Applesauce and graham crackers • Flavored yogurt and roasted soy nuts • Baked corn chips and bean dip • Lean ham or turkey slices wrapped around a breadstick For more snack ideas: 7885585 or tws

Hailey Organizes Citizens Committee

The City of Hailey is currently in the process of designing a biosolids (sludge) dewatering facility, in preparation of a bond election in May, 2014, to replace the current deteriorating fiberglass dome and steel tank and provide increased efficiencies at the treatment plant. We are inviting interested citizens to join an ad-hoc volunteer committee to be involved with reviewing the design and pilot testing information in conjunction with our consulting engineer, HDR Engineering. This committee will meet periodically with city staff and the consultant to review design information, pilot test results and discuss the direction of the project. The committee will be asked to be present during presentations to the city council to address any questions from the mayor and city council members. Interested citizens should contact Tom Hellen, Public Works Director, at 788-9830, ext. 14 or

noxious weeds

habitat for non-humanity


Knowing Your Knapweed

laine County has a handful of noxious weeds that are “the worst.” This week we’d like to highlight one species in particular — knapweed. There are several different types of knapweed, but this area typically sees spotted and diffuse. Both spotted and diffuse knapweed are characterized by their large blooming flowers, narrow leaves, and tall branches. Knapweed is of particular concern in Blaine County because wildlife is not able to eat it. It can take over open land fairly quickly, leaving little value to animals. Knapweed also seriously reduces productivity of rangelands, and can cause property values to decrease. Knapweed can be difficult to control due to its aggressive nature and strong seed viabil-

ity—and because a pulled plant can still bloom and flower! If you think you may have knapweed on your property (remember, it is state law that landowners control noxious weeds on their property), the Blaine County Weed Department can help identify the plant and put together a management plan. Proper management can include the use of herbicides, mechanical control, or bio-control. Management of knapweed depends on the area of infestation and the size of the land being cared for. Please, if you do pull knapweed, remember to bag it, tie it, and throw it in the garbage. For more information about K\knapweed or the Blaine County Weed Departtws ment, visit www.blainecounty. org or look for us on Facebook at This column is brought to you by Blaine County Weed Management.

Noxious weeds are a growing problem-do your part! Pull and report.

Keeping Up With the Joneses BY BALI SZABO


s the Habitat struggles and tries to find its way to safety between hate and bureaucracy (it still has no water), it walks the perilous interface between nature and humanity. I’m as American as a good potpie or the freedom of speech (just don’t forget the price tag), but I fell off the turnip wagon. I don’t compete with my neighbors, nor do I subscribe to some abstract or social standard. I am at the very least un-American. Cheating is as American as it gets, and it’s our best and brightest leading the way—Presidents, super-talented athletes (McGwire, A-Rod), the best students, the prettiest girls (anorexia and bulimia), wealthy investment bankers and middle/upper middle class shoplifters. It’s a long list. Keeping up with the Joneses has a big, fat dark side. Gardening is no stranger to competition. It has been at the forefront of social mobility and status seeking since the Dutch tulip mania of the 17th century. It continues to this day among the genteel but, in this instance, little harm is done, the Valley is the more beautiful for it, and the birds, bees and butterflies are happy. (For now, I’ll give the landscaping/nursery industry a pass, along with better-gardensthrough-chemistry.) Unfortunately, there has been a precipitous drop in the numbers of all garden-visiting birds and insects year after year. Amphibians are also in steep decline. Here at the Habitat it’s been a decent year for birds. The house cats that kept them away for the last two years have gotten fat and/or disinterested. The birds have adapted—quick to learn that fat cats can’t jump. I also raised the feeder a foot above its previous location. Animals

will love ‘you’ as long as you’re their sugar daddy. Put the food out and they will come, and you can think you’re a clone of St. Francis. The scarcity means that we have to compete for the birds in our backyards. If we want the summer charm of a 4 a.m. wake-up call from songbirds, we need to keep them happy, or we lose them to the Joneses. What do we need? The cover of deciduous and evergreen trees, some open ground or fields, shrubs and grasses, berry bushes, flowers, water, nest boxes and, above all, a banquet of goodies—thistle and sunflower seeds; fruits; suet; an improvised ball of GORP (nuts, raisins, oatmeal, peanut butter, etc.). The birds will sing your praises, and they will squawk if the banquet isn’t kept refilled. They know how to complain. Hidden, one silhouette among a thousand breeze-stirred leaves, they can see me, and aim their message right at me, a missile of song. I have yet to do the banquet, because the Habitat has some built-in advantages, like size and plant diversity. Still, next year I’ll add another bird box and two more tubular feeders, one for finches. For once, mo’ is better. tws

Learning to See Wildflowers


mateur enthusiasts look at wildflower guides, scratch their heads in disbelief at all the little yellow flowers found there, and lament, “They all look alike!” Although many “basic” wildflower guides separate plants by flower color, that is just not enough information. Once you have some idea of what characteristics to look for, and sharpen your powers of observation, learning plants becomes easier. Botanists identify plants on the basis of anatomy, habitat, and flowering season, and sometimes go to the extreme of counting chromosomes to separate some species. This rigorous approach isn’t necessary for casual enjoyment of local wildflowers, but a little knowledge will improve your mood when searching a flower guide. We recommend you start

by figuring out what family the plant belongs to, helping yourself by applying your knowledge of garden plants. Count the flower petals and note the veins of the leaves. A flower with three petals (or multiples of three) generally pairs with parallel veined leaves (families like Lily or Iris) while four petals plus netted leaf veins often indicates Mustard or Gentian family. Five-petal flowers are very common, so go deeper and determine if the flowers are in a tube shape and, if so, is the tube radially symmetrical (like the Phlox family) or bilaterally symmetrical (like the Pea family). The petal and leaf information will help you “weed out” similarly colored plants in the flower guide. Learn lots more on an ERC Wildflower Walk, most Thursdays through July 25. Call 726-4333 for information. tws

Kat & Harry Dellamater - Rocky Canyon Tileworks


ocky Canyon Tileworks creates their own handmade ceramic tile for one-of-a-kind mosaic tables, mirrors, plaques and trivets. Working as a team, Harry Dellamater’s background as a custom homebuilder and Kat’s lifelong love of texture and color have evolved into this functional mosaic artwork. Kat starts with a block of raw clay, sending it through a slab roller to create a uniform 1/4-inch thickness. With only simple hand tools, each flower, leaf, bug and various sizes of dots are painstakingly cut out one at a time. The shapes go through a multiple glazing and firing process, which includes both high and low temperature firings so the tiles are impervious, brightly colored and finely detailed. Harry cuts, shapes and welds steel into tables, frames, and trivets designed to accept Kat’s mosaic tile. He also modifies found iron frames to up-cycle them into our artwork. After Kat lays out the design, Harry glues and then grouts each item individually. This year we are incorporating powder-coated frames and epoxy grout into our designs,

Ninety-Eight Youngsters in Aladdin Jr. STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK

Jafar, projected like a professional, and Bryn Downey looked as poised as a peacock as she took on the role of Princess Jasmine, while 12-year-old Christine DuFur was suitably impish as the genie. The play, which featured 98 children, was put on by St. Thomas Playhouse Company B, a two-week summer

camp in which the children make props, learn to sing and dance and put on the play. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing we can put this together from start to finish in just two weeks!â&#x20AC;? said Melodie Mauldin.

Jason Blackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Theater Dreams BY JONATHAN KANE


hen asked to describe himself, Jason Black, a recent graduate of Wood River High School, says with a smile, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m an actor, singer, drummer and tech nerd.â&#x20AC;? And he has distinguished himself in all those categories, having been in the performing arts academy for two years, a singer with the B-Tones, a member of the drum line and partaking in the information and technology academy for four years. Black first found himself in the theater when a friend urged him to audition for Seussical The Musical. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All I had to do was sing sixteen bars of a song and I was in. I ended up playing a character from Horton Hears A Who. It was really nerve wracking going through the process but once I got the part I felt a lot better. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To be honest, rehearsals were not fun, and it was long and hard, but the performances went great. Most of it was learning the script and the play and then just getting out there and doing it. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never forget the first night. Everyone was on stage and when the curtain opened it was a big shock that all those

people were out there watching. A different part of me took over and the whole thing took off. It was exhilarating.â&#x20AC;? Black also learned something about playing comedy. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The energy from the audience was really a big factor. When you do something funny, you really want them to laugh, but you learn not to play it for the laughs, but if you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get one, it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t because it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t funny but because they were just processing it.â&#x20AC;? Since then he has appeared in St. Thomasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; production of Fame and he got the opportunity to appear in a serious drama â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Crucible, by Arthur Miller. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was tons of fun but a lot of work â&#x20AC;&#x201C; actually, the same amount of work as a musical. Also I have always loved the play. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a powerful piece and very accurate historically, which made it so much more real to play the part.â&#x20AC;? In the show, Black was Reverend Parris, which is one of the five leads. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a lot of lines to memorize which was pretty hard,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But it all paid off in the end because the shows went great and the audience really loved it.â&#x20AC;? He also enjoys working backstage, as he has done tech for Footlight Dance Centre and recently ran

ary Green was born the year the Sun Valley Lodge was built. But she didn’t have to drive the 46 miles from her home near Carey to skate on the iconic ice skating rink that soon emerged outside the lodge. She grew up skating, instead, on a pond that sat the length of a football field from her family’s farmhouse on the Little Wood River six miles north of Carey. “We’d skate until my father harvested the ice,” she recalled. “He and the others would saw blocks with a handsaw. Then he’d put the blocks on a sled and a horse would pull them through the snow to an icehouse, which was about 20 feet by 40 feet. My dad would cover the blocks with sawdust to keep them from melting. And in the summer he’d sell ice to the people going into Muldoon since there was no refrigeration then.” Green was inducted into the Blaine County Heritage Court Sunday afternoon, along with Wendy Collins, Laren Price and Dolly Collier. She was nominated to the court by the Carey Senior Connection for the contributions she’s made to the Wood River Valley during her 77 years—contributions that include 12 years as county clerk, a stint on the committee that helped incorporate Carey as a city, and gigs on the Carey cemetery board and the city’s planning and zoning board and as president of her church’s Relief Society.

A Danish accent

Green’s grandfather on her father’s side came to the area from Copenhagen, Denmark, in 1890, settling with his brother near Silver Creek. In time, Albert Albrethsen, who served as state land inspector, county commissioner and county assessor, bought farmland near Carey. Green’s mother’s side also came from Denmark but settled in Utah. Sybl Justesen met Green’s father Alex when she visited Carey to help her aunt with cooking and household chores one summer. “We had a good life back then, raising cattle and sheep,” said Green, who was delivered by Dr. Fox in the hospital that occupied the building that now hosts the Hailey Public Library. “I helped feed the chickens and the lambs and, as I got older, I’d help bring in the cows and milk them by hand. I’ve got big hands—maybe I got them from milking.” Carey was bigger then, boasting a barbershop, post office, garage, gas station, grocery and dry goods stores, café, and sports shop where the kids enjoyed milkshakes while the guys played pinochle. The church showed movies, such as “Cleopatra,” “The Prisoner of Zenda,” “Citizen Kane,” “Casablanca” and “The Grapes of Wrath” on Saturdays. And the schoolhouse housed 12 grades under one roof, as five one-room schoolhouses were brought in from surrounding environs. “My older brothers went to school in a horse-drawn bus but, by the time I went, it was a regular school bus. When we got a lot of snow, we might be out of school for a week when the roads got shut. We’d just have to wait the storm out. I’d read books and the ‘Farm Journal Magazine,’ which had everything in it, even special pages for kids,” she recalled. “Everything was a little slower then, which was good. We weren’t always in such a big

For more than 40 years, Mary and her husband, Dude, have used packhorses to take their family out and enjoy the backcountry. In this photo, they had just completed a several day packing trip from Mormon Hill to the Little Wood around 1994.


Talk about Florida’s dangling chads!

Green’s husband, Donald “Dude” Green, moved from Hagerman to a Carey ranch when he was in third grade. But Mary Green didn’t take note of him until she was in high school, since he was a couple years ahead of her in school. “He liked the outdoors, horse riding, the things I enjoyed doing. So, after I graduated, we got married. We never got farming out of our system, I guess. After he got out of the service, we bought 30 acres about four miles from where I grew up and raised some cattle and sheep. We also raised three daughters and a son. They’re scattered throughout Arizona, Utah, Oregon and Washington, except for our son Kyle, who works with the Blaine County Sheriff’s Department.” Dude worked as a county deputy for 27 years while Mary worked in the recorder’s office for 20 until she retired in 1999. She recalls taking voter counters outside on the fire escape to cool them off with a damp cloth when they’d overheat. One time, the counters malfunctioned and she had to take the ballots to Burley to be counted. “We loaded the ballots in the sheriff’s deputy car and the party representatives went with us to make sure everything was on the up and up,” she said. When work was done, Green headed outdoors. Marsha Reimann, who succeeded Green as county clerk, recalls fondly a horse trip Mary organized for members of the county clerk’s office in the Muldoon area. And in 1990 Dude and Mary went on the Centennial Wagon Train ride, which marked Idaho’s 100th anniversary as the nation’s 43rd state.

“I have so much admiration for the ones who came before us. We knew where we were going to be each night. We knew we could get to the doctor if something happened. They didn’t know those things. They had to be strong, sturdy people to go through all they went through.” They joined the covered-wagon odyssey as it passed through Prairie, Pine and Featherville, driving over Dollarhide Summit into Ketchum. They then reported back to work while the train went up Trail Creek and through the Copper Basin, rejoining it in Mackay where they followed it along the East Fork of the Salmon River before finishing up in Stanley. “It was a lot of fun and we met a lot of nice people but it was a lot of hard work since we had to set up camp and take it down each day and feed and harness the mules so we could be on the road by 7:30 in the morning,” she recalled. “And, working with horses, we knew we could always expect some wrecks—and we got them. “I have so much admiration for the ones who came before us,” she added. “We knew where we were going to be each night. We knew we could get to the doctor if something happened. They didn’t know those things. They had to be strong, sturdy people to go through all they went tws through.”

everal years ago I wondered what Albertsons did with those tubs of picked, ‘unsuitable’ vegetables the produce aisle generated every morning. Eventually I inquired and was told that it was all going to a composter here in the Valley. That composter is Winn’s Compost, located across from the Transfer Station at Ohio Gulch. Winn Weaver and his wife Maria run this family business that began four years ago. In the beginning, he picked up the waste from Albertsons, CK’s, Rasberries and Sun Valley Company. Today, the Blaine County School District is on board. The pick-up was time consuming and he wasn’t getting enough, but with each passing year, as the word spread and more individuals dropped off waste at these businesses, he had enough to be commercially viable. Today, Clear Creek does the pick-up and brings four gravel trucks’ worth. Winn used to run out by the end of May. Now, he has 300 yards worth of inventory. As I talked to the voluble Winn on several occasions, it became clear he loved his work and wanted to do things right, and that includes the cooking of compost. The minimum requirement is for the compost to reach an internal temperature of 132 degrees for three days. This kills the pathogens. Winn cooks his to 150 degrees for two weeks or more. He also turns the product continually to make sure it all gets exposed to those temperatures. It’s difficult for individuals to do this. Winn’s Compost serves individuals and the smaller contractors in the Valley. As any small business, he’s always up

against the big boys and their not-so-transparent methods. He couldn’t survive on compost alone, so he expanded into making shrub compost, and a wide range of mulches (three), from coarse to fine, and colored ones that use organic pigments. He screens his soil/compost mixes into 3/8-inch and 5/8-inch piles to provide contractors with two looks. One thing Winn stressed is our poor nitrogen environment, and the need to add as much nitrogen to our soil as possible. (I augment his compost with guano). Leaves and grass are good sources, as is horse, cow and poultry manure. Nitrogenfixing legume cover crops are great if you have enough acreage and crop rotate. Manure’s acid content also helps balance the PH of our alkali soils. Winn gets his horse manure from the Silver Bell and River Grove ranches. As the use of the word ‘organic’ grows, it loses its meaning. Like power, money corrupts.

Winn eschews the word because he can’t guarantee that anything is uncontaminated by modern chemicals which have completely permeated our lives and the environment. The Habitat is only relatively clean. As the movement for knowing where our food comes from and ‘going local’ grows, it’s also important to know and trust our soil additives to our gardens. Winn is conscientious and can vouch for everything he makes. He will eventually begin to process human waste, which he insists is fine as long as the processing is thorough, and the word ‘bio-solids’ is clearly indicated on the packaging. I have started to use all his products. If you go, take a shovel, and containers. He does deliver, and his prices are reasonable.

On-the-Edge-of-Your-Seat Theater BY KAREN BOSSICK


rooke Wyeth is a child of California who grew up among the beaches and orange groves but prefers the unpredictability of New Englandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s weather. Her father is a former ambassador, an Old Guard Republican resident of Hollywood who has had his picture in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lifeâ&#x20AC;? magazine. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a kind man, according to his daughter, who adores her so much that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready to buy the home next door to have her closer to the family. Her mother is a woman who reduced Nancy Reagan, Betsy Bloomingdale and Mrs. Annenberg to tears at lunch one day. Her aunt is a liberal who rails against the war in the desert, even as she tries to hang onto the proverbial booze-free wagon. And her brother is a laidback peacemaker type who just wants to know how his sister can expect her parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; blessing on a memoir that portrays them as deluded fossils. The elephant in the room is Brookeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other brother, who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rate a single picture amidst family pictures taken with Frank Sinatra, Rock Hudson and Barry Goldwater. He knew the words to every Beach Boys song but joined a cult and waged a war of ideals with bombs before killing himself. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the things that have been said and left unsaid concerning this brother that provide fodder for a tale of family strife, secretiveness, reaching out and forgiveness.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tale that Company of Fools will tell when the theater company presents â&#x20AC;&#x153;Other Desert Citiesâ&#x20AC;? by Pulitzer Prize nominee Jon Robin Baitz, July 2 through 27 at The Liberty Theatre in Hailey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a story we think our Valley will go nuts over,â&#x20AC;? said Denise Simone, who plays the mother. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s funny, humorous, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delicious. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s often a great deal of humor involved when it comes to dysfunctional families and the playwright doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shy away from that.â&#x20AC;? Hanna Cheek, who has appeared in TVâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The West Wing,â&#x20AC;? plays Brooke; Keith Moore, the father; and Denise Simone, the mother. Patsy Wygle, who formerly appeared in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Law and Orderâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;One Life to Live,â&#x20AC;? plays the aunt, while Adrian Rieder, a graduate of the Julliard School and an off-Broadway performer, plays the brother, Trip. They act out the story, a Tony Award nominee for Best New Play in 2011, against the backdrop of Joe Lavigneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sixties-style Palm Springs mansion living room. The name is taken from a sign on the highway instructing passersby that they can turn off at Palm Springs or keep heading â&#x20AC;&#x153;For Other Desert Cities.â&#x20AC;? The Fools brought Rusty Wilson back from Richmond, Va., to direct the playâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;no one does relationships better than Rusty, said Simone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This play has some very rich family relationships and dynamics, and family relationships

The play challenges the audience to consider a host of ethical questions, including current headlines concerning the National Security Agency and leaks, noted Rieder, who plays Trip: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of that story is reflected in this piece.â&#x20AC;?

shifting gears

Find It or Grind It Bike safety, etiquette, and technique tips from a pro! BY DAVE HARRISON


yclist of all types, road or mountain, will benefit from a practiced regimen of constant shifting. Shifting is the art of adapting to terrain changes by switching to higher (harder) or lower (easier) gears based on the steepness of any given descent or ascent (downhill or uphill). Don’t be confused by all the new technology. The basics of shifting have not changed since you had your first 10-speed Schwinn. In general, you still use your left shifter to operate the front derailleur (influencing the front chainrings) and the right shifter (influencing the rear cogs). Don’t be discouraged by new twist shifters or thumb- forefinger lever combos; they still change the same gears, there are just more to choose from now. I used to have to walk my bike up the last hill before my driveway on my old 10-speed. Then I learned to traverse up the paved climb using imaginary switchbacks. With today’s technology there is a myriad of gear choices. You can even take your bike into a local bike shop and they can change certain chain rings or cogs, to make it easier for you. For reference, it is interesting to note that the smaller your chainring is up front, the easier (lower) the gear is. Conversely, the larger the cog you use in the back, the easier it is to pedal. Using this formula, all you have to do is move your chain to your smallest chainring up front, using your left shifter. Simultaneously move the chain to the largest cog in the rear using your right shifter. This is the lowest or easiest gear you have,

often referred to as the “granny” gear. If you have an older bike without indicators on the shifters, simply take a brief look down to see what gear you are in. Some of these older indexed shifters require the old art of finesse. Trim the derailleurs yourself, feathering the adjustment, so the chain isn’t rubbing or clanking. Find it or grind it! Here are some shifting tips: 1. Clutching - Anticipate a steep climb and shift ahead of time. I understand this is not always possible. When you are late for a shift, pedal hard for a few pedal strokes to gain momentum, then ease up as you shift, to relieve pressure on the drive train. Master this technique of “clutching” and you will save money on bike parts. 2. Avoid chain slap - After climbing a steep climb, most people forget to shift up to a larger chainring up front of the upcoming downhill. If you remember to shift to a bigger chainring in front, you’ll increase chain tension, decrease annoying chain slap and reduce chances of your chain de-railing on a rough downhill. 3. Momentum is your friend Avoid shifting altogether, simply by looking ahead and reading the terrain. For instance, monopolize on a short downhill by pedaling hard in anticipation of the upcoming “roller” or hill. You can use this momentum to coast up most of the hill, then take a few well-timed pedal stokes to crest the now-tamed menace.

Don Wiseman checks out the key to the city that Ketchum City Councilman Baird Gourlay gave him Sunday.



on Wiseman was praised Sunday for a “servantstyle leadership” Sunday as the community celebrated the end of his tenure as head of the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation. Sun Valley Nordic Coach Rick Kapala told how Wiseman would often drive shuttle vans for races at Lake Creek and help set up and take down tents for the annual Janss Pro-Am. “You can’t help but be inspired when your boss brings his ‘A’ game every day,” Kapala told a few hundred people who gathered to honor Wiseman at Ketchum’s Memory Park. Alpine Coach Ruben Macaya echoed Kapala’s sentiments: “He helped us all be better leaders by himself being a better leader.” Wiseman will hand over the golden ski pole to former Winter

Sports School Headmaster Rob Clayton on July 1 after 13 years as executive director of the Ski Education Foundation. But not before securing the donation of a condo to be used for the foundation’s offices, as the old space at the bottom of Baldy is remodeled to make room for new lockers and exercise space. A capital campaign will also be forthcoming. Wiseman reiterated his oftvoiced enthusiasm for the way the ski program helps build youngsters into productive adults—many of whom return to the community to become doctors, business people, realtors and, yes, ski coaches. “We teach kids to work in groups but be powerful individuals, and that is why they keep coming back, and I hope that we can keep them coming back,” he said. tws

Fishing R epoRt The “Weekly” Fishing RepoRT FoR June 26 FRom picabo angleR


ere comes the heat of summer! Expect the fishing to heat up as well! We made a very quick transition from dropping water with early summer hatches to the doorstep of our summer hatches. The most important flies you need to have stocked in your box are Tricos and Cicadas. This tiny mayfly and this huge terrestrial are going to carry the fish well into the heat of summer and both respond well to rising temperatures. The Cicadas can be heard chirping in the trees, and on the South Fork of the Boise it is already game on. Expect the same all over in coming weeks, as this bug is beginning to infest trees, bushes, sage brush…Although it is not Trico time yet, it is very possible that the first sighting of these little Mayflies will be around the 1st of July. P.M.D, Callibaetis and Baetis continue to be mainstays on Silver Creek, with great Damsel Fly action on the hot days, like the coming weekend. The heat should keep the Green Drake action on the Big Wood ramped up, and big attractors can used as well. Try dropping small bead head nymphs off of these also. The South Fork of the Boise is fishing well, with big foam on the banks and seams being the most fun way to fish. Take advantage of the Salmon Fly and Cicada action, it’s a great time to watch fish eat the biggest dry flies you can cast! The upper Lost is fishing well, with very little angling pressure. The flows continue to drop and more and more fishable water appears each day. Large to medium size attractors are the ticket. Turck’s Tarantula, Stimulators and Trudes are all excellent choices. The lower Lost is still running high with spotty fishing at best and nearly no wading to be had. Be patient though, with the low snow pack this year the lower Lost is going to become fishable well before it normally does. Keep your eyes on the gauges in Mackay, it’s going to be a fun summer over there. As we approach the holiday week, keep in mind the rivers and streams will get busier. This would be a great time to hike into some mountain lakes, or try float tubing one of the local reservoirs like Magic. In any case, be aware that a few more folks will be out and about, so treat each other with kindness, respect and remember we’re all just doing this for the fun of it!

t was with great trepidation that I went to see Brad Pittâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new summer blockbuster World War Z. But the news to report is that the sci-fi thriller is pretty good and far outdistances such CGI overloads as Iron Man 3 and Star Trek Into Darkness. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s this lack of bombastic overkill of effects and lame story that separate World War Z from the rest of the pack. Based on a novel by Max Brooks (Melâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s son), much of the credit goes to Brad Pittâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;more so as the producer of the movie than as its star, although he does a fine job at that. The film has had a rocky history after being pulled from the winter schedule so that Pitt could craft a new ending which in turn pushed the budget to $200 million. This made it the hands-down most expensive zombie movie of all time. But even with that the film at times feels intimate with edge-of-your seat thrills. Pitt plays a retired U.N. inspector who is forced back into service when a worldwide pandemic strikes that turns humans into ravenous, swarming zombies. We first encounter them as Pitt and family are stuck in Philadelphia traffic when an explosion goes off and panic ensues. The zombies are attracted to noise and movement and are fast moving, like army ants, and swarming over their prey. Pitt is coerced into joining the battle in exchange for the safety of his family, but the agreement appears to be tenuous. So Pitt crosses the globe, traveling to South Korea, Jerusalem and Wales, among other stops, to hopefully solve the mystery. We are along for the ride and, all in all, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pretty good adventure. tws

Symphony’s New Offices in Ketchum

read it

Moehringer’s First Book The Tender Bar: A Memoir by R.J. Moehringer, Hardback: 370 pages, ©2005 BY MARGOT VAN HORN


his Read It selection for Father’s Day is a bit tardy, I’m sorry to say. However, I think that no matter what time of the year it is, fathers, sons, daughters, mothers and grandparents, too, will enjoy this memoir. It is a bit reminiscent of McCourt’s “Angela’s Ashes,” only not as dire. It speaks to close personal relationships, not of a father, but like that of a father, that can help form a boy’s life. This book also speaks to the mothers of abandoned fathers and their struggles in trying to raise a son without a father. And the story speaks to the journey of a would-be journalist and novelist. As well, it has a message for those who imbibe of the liquid gold a bit too much. So it has many different messages. This is R.J.’s first book and I thought that he wrote it beautifully. Aside from pathos, it contains a lot a humor. The “bar” is not one used by a ballerina or one of the sea, but a vibrant vivid pub kind of bar serving lots and lots of booze and inhabited


ay Weake, Deanna Immel, Carter Hedburg and Vicki Abrams show off the Sun Valley Summer Symphony’s new library in its new office during an open house and reception Monday evening. The symphony took advantage of a low-cost commercial real estate opportunity and a chance to establish a permanent home to move out of the Gail Severn Gallery building to the corner of 2nd Street and 2nd Avenue in Ketchum. The library, which is just in its infancy, has about 200 music titles, said librarian Immel. (Right) Symphony Music Director Alasdair Neale grabs a glass of wine and a hug from board member Marcia Mode Stavros before heading into the symphony’s new administrative offices, which have enough glass doors and walls to keep a plethora of glass cleaners happy.

by a slew of real people from all walks of life. They are the ones who become the father for R.J. The “bar” turns into one of the characters in the book. R.J. portrays it as having a life of its own and that’s one of the interesting things about this book. The “bar” becomes the addiction for R.J. and I guess you could say it’s the co-dependent. One sentence I really liked in the book was the following: “While I fear that we’re drawn to what abandons us, and to what seems most likely to abandon us, in the end I believe we’re defined by what embraces us.” I think that men as well as women will like this book and that’s one of the reasons that I am recommending it. R.J. is a Pulitzer Prize-winning writer for The Los Angeles Times, so that tells to his being an accomplished writer. He has just recently, in 2012, written another book titled “Sutton.” It’s about Willie Sutton, America’s most famous bank robber. It has received very good reviews and I am planning to read that as well. So for some more summer reading, enjoy!! Give us your feedback at tws

Kim Mazik, Hailey Sport and Spine Physical Therapy


oing to see Kim Mazik’s Hailey Sport and Spine Physical Therapy is like visiting with a long lost friend. You walk through the door and are greeted by her furry friends. Kim asked a million questions about my daily routines, from which side I carry my kids on my hip, to the position that I fell asleep in. I did not realize, at first, that what she was doing was diagnosing the daily life habits that I have and determining if the actions that I was performing were causing the problems that I was encountering. She was learning my repetitive movement patterns to help her discover why a person—or me, in particular—may be feeling pain in a particular area of their body. Kim looks to discover the original reason for the pain and not just to treat the immediate problem. Kim explained to me that my knee might be hurting from the way that I am compensating subconsciously from my weakened ankle or hip. She takes it as her job to be the “detective”—to find the true source and help the client by correcting the original pain culprit. As Kim says, pain is just the messenger to help let us know we are doing or reacting to some problem that


we need to pay attention to. Kim has over 26 years’ experience. She has been working and treating people in the Valley for 16 years. She has extensive training as an orthopedic manual therapist. Her approach is holistic and eclectic, blending joint manipulation, massage therapy, yoga and Pilates. She not only helps you pinpoint the cause of your pain or discomfort, but how to manage your symptoms outside the clinic. If you are in any pain, visit Kim Mazik at Hailey Sport and Spine Physical Therapy. tws

Eggs and Avocados Make for a Protein-Rich Breakfast BY MARGOT VAN HORN


hope that you enjoyed my last avocado/grapefruit guacamole recipe. Well, avocados are still on my mind, so here is another easy and yummy recipe for most anytime—but, of course, perfect for breakfast. I serve this with warm tortillas, but a crusty baguette or toasted English muffin would also make a nice accompaniment. By the way, the avocado—or alligator pear, as it is sometimes called—has a very old heritage. Evidence of its use was found in a cave located in

Coxcatlan, Puebla, Mexico, that dates to around 10,000 B.C. So, this fruit definitely demands respect. Huevos en Avocados— (think eggs and avocados) Up to you to determine the serving amounts

Ingredients: Avocados — as many as you wish Eggs — as many as you wish Diced cooked ham or bacon, which you can fry stovetop while your dish is in the oven

Does that favorite vehicle in the garage need some work?

and sprinkle the bits over the avocados when they are done (optional) Chopped green onions—the whole thing Fresh cracked black pepper (optional) Paprika and/or chili powder (optional) Mexican shredded cheese (optional) Salsa (optional)

Directions: Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line your desired baking dish that you will be using with

aluminum foil. Cut the avocados in half, length-wise. If there is not enough of a dip in the avocado to hold an egg, take some of the flesh out so that you’ll have a nice dip. Place the avocados in the dish and place a cracked egg in each. Some of the white may run over, but that’s OK. Top the avocado and the inserted egg with the options listed above in the ingredients. You might think of even more options to add while cooking or for toppings, such as sour cream, etc.

Place the dish in the oven for 20 minutes. You can see if you like the results at 15 minutes, but mine was perfect in 20 minutes.

FERMENTING, from page 1

Love Feels Good BY CONNIE LOVE


ove feels good. Do you frequently feel that you are not good enough? Are you looking for validation from others? When you look in the mirror, do you see a battered spirit? People who truly love you treat you well. If people treat you badly in the name of love, your spirit will become damaged. If you allow yourself or your children to remain in a situation where you or they are battered — mentally, physically or emotionally — it is usually a sign that you have too little love for yourself. So what should you do? Find space in your heart to love yourself. Avoid being confused about what love really is. Stop expecting to gain your own happiness from other people. Your source of happiness and well-being is inside yourself, not something that comes from others. We can all learn to depend on ourselves. Even if other people are not there for you, you can start being there for yourself.

Refuse to let your view of love get distorted. It is too easy to think, “If I please him or her, he/ she will love me” and everything will be okay. This can become an obsession, almost like a drug. You do not have to sacrifice yourself and your own well-being to obtain love. When you trust yourself, you will stop putting up with bad behavior and begin to honor yourself. Remember that if anyone dishonors you, this is not love. Love feels good. It is grace and joy. Following are some thoughts that can you help you let go of behavior that is hurting you. Letting go is … · not ceasing to care; it means realizing I can’t do it — whatever it may be — for someone else. · not cutting myself off; it’s realizing that I can’t control someone else. · to admit powerlessness, and to accept that the outcome is not in my hands. · to realize that I cannot change others; I can only change myself.


· to learn to state the facts and speak the truth without fear. · to stop being protective and permit another to face reality. · to give up hope that the future will be different from the past. · to fear less and love more. Always remember that love should feel good. If it doesn’t feel good, it isn’t really love.

ferment string beans and beets and hand them out like candy at Christmas, added Johnson. Ketchum filmmaker Kendall Nelson is among those who make sure she has a jar of fermented vegetables on hand. “I was turned onto it by the Weston Price movement,” she said, referring to a dentist who concluded the modern Western diet causes nutritional deficiencies after traveling the world studying the diets and nutrition of various cultures. “My head knows it’s good for me.” Dore says she likes knowing that she can feed her now8-year-old daughter Luna a heaping dose of good nutrition a spoonful at a time. “As a working mom, sometimes fresh vegetables go bad and I’ve wasted my money. I know these fermented foods are not going to go bad. I introduced my daughter to sour foods like a spoonful of plain yogurt when she was little and she likes the fermented foods just fine. I think kids like sour better than tws we think.”

haun Peterson designed an inch-tall pin in the shape of the yellow ribbons that have been tied around Sun Valley area fenceposts since Bergdahl was captured. The pin, donated by Barry Peterson Jewelers, features yellow sapphires and the word “Bowe” engraved at the top. “It’s all about the yellow ribbons,” said Peterson. “I just moved here from California in October so the Bowe Bergdahl story is a new story for me. It feels good, satisfying, that I was able to contribute something, knowing it’s for a good cause.” The ribbon was reportedly bought by bikers at Saturday’s rally, who then donated it to the Bergdahls. tws

Moments from the rally:

• Pastor Bob Henley, of the Presbyterian Church of the Big Wood, told listeners that God had not made a mistake in choosing Bowe to be the person enduring four long years of captivity. He added that the family’s faith coupled with the prayers and support of those in the audience had sustained Bob and Jani Bergdahl. “Our prayer is simply this: Bring Bowe home.” • Hailey Police Chief Jeff Gunter apologized to the Bergdahls publicly for a statement he’d made the last time he’d appeared at a public gathering with them. “I said that the next time I’d be on this stage, Bowe would be standing next to me, and he’s not… I can only imagine the peaks and valleys (the Bergdahls) go through each day. They’re in my prayers. I hope they’re in your prayers, too.” • Bert Gillette, who works with veterans with brain injuries through Sun Valley’s

Higher Ground, presented the Bergdahls with Higher Ground jackets and hats. Ironically, wounded vets who were part of “a band of brothers” during war must face the hardest battles of their life—that of dealing with war injuries— alone, he said. The jackets offer them a semblance of a uniform and the assurance they’re not dealing with this latest battle alone. Gillette added that Bob Bergdahl had told him his first priority was bringing Bowe home and his other priority was to help returning vets find a happy life and peace of mind. “When Bowe does come home, we’ll be here to help,” he added. • Blaine County Sheriff’s Detective Mark Dalton told how Sheriff Gene Ramsey had told him that soldiers who rescued captive soldiers were always met with a simple statement: “I knew you would come.” tws

he father of America’s only prisoner of war in Afghanistan made an impassioned plea for a peace that would bring his son home Saturday afternoon at a rally in Hailey. “May we, after 12 long years, see peace happen in Afghanistan,” Bob Bergdahl said in the Afghan language of Pashto. “Bowe, my son, if you can hear me on BBC Radio, you are part of the peace process. You are part of ending the Afghanistan war, like we have known for some time.” Bergdahl continued in Pashto, assuring his son that he was not forgotten. And he told how he has set his cell phone to Afghan time to share in his son’s experience in exile. “I do not live here. I live in Afghanistan. I might be standing here, but I am living vicariously through my son,” he said. “A father does not leave his son alone. I will not leave you on the battlefield. These people will not leave you on the battlefield. This country will not leave you on the battlefield.” Bergdahl sported a long beard that he began growing after his son’s capture as he rode to the rally at Hop Porter Park—a park where Bowe had played as a kid. He rode his son’s 1978 dirt

bike as part of a Missing Man Formation. More than 400 motorcyclists wearing leather covered with patches commemorating their stints in Vietnam, Iraq and other wars, roared past black and white POW/MIA flags that had taken their place on Hailey sidewalks. The flags offered a vivid contrast to the yellow ribbons and signs urging “Bring Bowe Back” that have become part of the fabric of this town since the 27-year-old Army sergeant was taken captive four years ago. Among the motorcyclists were Jay and Louise Noyes of East Fork. “It was very cool. It was special,” Louise Wilson Noyes said, tapping her heart. “It felt meaningful, like we were doing something that made a statement in a tiny way.” Rolling Thunder cyclist Bill Atkinson came from Chicago, Ill., for the rally: “We left a lot of boys behind in Vietnam—my war,” he said. “We can’t do that, anymore. We’ve got to bring this boy home. It’s a sin they haven’t done so already.” More than a dozen TV cameramen showed up from outside the Valley for the event, which had been the lead story on Yahoo that morning, according to one proud local. The outside media included a broadcaster and cam-

eraman for BBC. “The British are very interested in the U.S.-Afghan thing. When the Taliban brought up the possibility of dealing Bowe for a few prisoners this week and we found out this was going on here, it seemed like a bit of a no brainer to come here,” said BBC reporter Ben Wright. Wright referred to an announcement last week by the Taliban that they would return Bergdahl for five prisoners being held at Guantanamo Bay. The Bergdahls received a letter in Bowe’s handwriting a couple weeks prior to that announcement. A POW/MIA flag with Bowe Bergdahl’s name on it flew near a table set for the missing man. The table was set for one, symbolizing the fragility of a prisoner alone in captivity. A lemon offered a reminder of the bitterness of captivity. An inverted glass and empty chair signaled that the prisoner of war could not be there to offer a toast. A candle signified hope. “We look at the flags around this park—all reminders that one of our own is missing. And that’s not okay with us,” Hailey Mayor Fritz Haemmerle told a couple thousand people who had gathered around the stage. “That’s not okay with Jani and Bob Bergdahl. And the city of

Hailey wants its son back.” There are 83,649 families out there who go to bed every night not knowing what happened to loved ones who never came home from war, added Donna Kelly Thibedeau-Eddy, who represented the Idaho POW/MIA chapter. “We know at least one live POW. His name is Sergeant Bob Bergdahl and we will continue to raise awareness until he is brought home,” she added. Bergdahl’s parents Jani and Bob turned a symbolic spade at one of four maple trees planted in Hop Porter Park to mark their son’s four years in captivity. You don’t plant trees for yourself. You plant them for posterity, Bob Bergdahl said. He encouraged people to Google the Afghan Tree Project. “They’ve already done a wonderful job with a small amount of funds to try to plant and grow trees. Afghanistan needs trees, just as we need trees,” he said. In a surprise move, Jani Bergdahl took the microphone before her husband. She described how her son was an adventurous boy who took a sailboat through the Panama Canal and then bought a bike to ride 350 miles down Highway 101 to meet his family in Santa Barbara after he landed in San Francisco. She also described how he visited with the Peruvian sheepherders


who watched sheep in the hills around the Wood River Valley— an experience that taught him each person is unique. “We’re feeling optimistic this week,” she told onlookers. Then, she added, “Bowe, you are not forgotten. I love you my son, as I have from the first moment I heard of you, the never-ending, unconditional love a mother has for her child.” “I wish she was the only mother suffering, but that’s not true. Many mothers are suffering because of this war,” Bob Bergdahl followed up, glancing at his wife. Bob Bergdahl reiterated that his son was an adventurous kid—“and I hope he’s on the adventure of his life.” “He believed he could help people of Afghanistan—that was his goal,” Bob added. Bowe said in a video released by his captors that he had been captured as he lagged behind his patrol. But some have theorized he may have walked away from the base—possibly, to try to make friends with Afghans— while off duty. Bob Bergdahl showed listeners Saturday that he had no tolerance for those who might accuse his son of being a deserter: “I’ll defend his character until the day I die.” tws

(clockwise from left) Jani and Bob Bergdahl look at a tree planted in their son’s honor. A few hundred motorcyclists, including those who were part of a 100-person contingent from Elko, Nev., rumbled into Hailey Saturday afternoon for the Bring Bowe Back Rally at Hop Porter Park. Nancy Blunt of Elko and her husband David present Jani Bergdahl with flowers. Cathy Osterhout, who works at the Twin Falls County Jail, whistled as the cyclists revved their engine as a show of support for Bowe. The ride was a pretty emotional one, acknowledged Osterhout, who also has ridden in the motorcycle escort for Camp Rainbow Gold. Mayor Fritz Haemmerle talks with Bob Bergdahl, who rode Bowe’s bike in the missing man formation prior to the rally. Cyclists offer a salute next to a POW/MIA flag as a soloist sings “The Star Spangled Banner.” Gloria Gunter clutched her fist to her heart as she led more than 2,000 people in the audience in singing “God Bless America.”

Summer Project Theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s West Side Story STORY & PHOTOS BY KAREN BOSSICK


here may have been a rumble on the stage of The Community School Theatre this weekend. But, far from wreaking havoc, the Summer Project Theaterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presentation of â&#x20AC;&#x153;West Side Storyâ&#x20AC;? only showed how much talent there is among the young people in this Valley. Sarah Arters, a Wood River High School student,

knocked everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s socks off as she sang her way through â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tonightâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Feel Prettyâ&#x20AC;? in what is just her second play. (Her first was Company Bâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seussical the Musicalâ&#x20AC;?) Izzy Taylor and Victoria Brown also leant strong voices to the performance, backed by a chorus of talented girls. The kids did some nifty stepping to Jerome Robbinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; complicated choreography, which was modified somewhat

by choreographers Peter Burke and Sara Gorby. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They worked hard, particularly when you consider the play is over two hours long,â&#x20AC;? said Burke. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The kids did a great job of bringing the consequences of prejudice, violence and irrational anger to the audience,â&#x20AC;? said Cherie Kessler, who heads up St. Thomas Playhouse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought the staging and choreography really added to the power of the story.â&#x20AC;? tws


Bernardo, played by Emmet Fortuin, takes on rival gang leader Riff, played by Alec England, in a hand-wrestling contest. Izzy Taylor and Sarah Arters, as Anita and Maria. Maria, played by Sarah Arters, and Tony, played by Drew Morse, made for a sympathetic couple worth rooting for, even though you had a feeling it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to go okay in the end. The Latino women back up Maria (Sarah Arters) as she sings â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Feel Pretty.â&#x20AC;?

Ask the Guys

Dear Classified Guys, I have a friend who just doesn't get it when it comes to work. As a teenager she worked for her Mom at a big retail store. She only worked part-time and made more money than me and my friends combined. When she graduated college, she worked in administration at her uncle's law firm. After a few years of passing her responsibilities on to others and calling in sick when she needed a "mental health day", she found herself out of work when her uncle retired. Now she's looking for a new job on her own with no help from family members. She's answered some ads in the newspaper, but the problem is that her family never prepared her. By spoiling her with inflated salaries and a poor work ethic, she's really struggling to find something equivalent to what she had before. She calls me to complain, but in all honesty I want to tell her to grow up and join the real world with the rest of us. Do you guys think I should just listen to her or tell her what I really think?

Cash: It sounds like you could

use a "mental health day" as well. It's not easy to be supportive of your friends when you don't sympathize with their situation. Carry: A lot of jobs are found by networking through friends, family or other relationships, but when the network dries up, you have to do it on your own. Your friend was fortunate enough to have someone help her find a job both before and after college. However, once she was in those positions, she should have taken her job responsibly. Cash: Her new circumstances, although unfortunate, may be a good learning experience for her as well. Sometimes failure can be the quickest road to being success-

ful. If she keeps looking, she may just find a job where she can excel. Carry: If you're tired of listening to your friend complain about her circumstances, you can let her know without being mean or unsympathetic. Rather than telling her to "grow up and join the real world," try motivating her to find a job she would enjoy. Even if the salary isn't what she's accustomed to, finding a job that she likes would encourage her to work harder and not require as many "mental health days". Cash: Besides, if you help her find the right job, she might have the money to take you out to celebrate!

Reader Humor Making the Grade

Between Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan, growing up rich doesn't seem to breed responsibility. While this may be true for some, a new "Growing Up Wealthy Study" shows very different results. The survey suggests that most affluent teens today are responsible, hard working and ambitious. Nearly 66% of the teens involved in the survey had full or part-time jobs that accounted for their spending money. A vast majority of the parents, 9 out of 10, felt their kids would learn the value of money through hard work.

When my husband took a new position as the principal of an elementary school, I volunteered as a recess monitor a few hours every day. I soon realized I wasn't ready for some of the student’s behavior. On my first day two boys were talking bad about the new principal right in front of me. Not wanting to tolerate their inappropriate behavior, I said to them, "Do you know who I am? I'm the principal's wife." Immediately their faces went blank with fear. After a moment of thought one of them asked, "Do you know who we are?" Since I was new I had to admit I didn't know their names yet. With a look of relief, he replied, "Oh thank goodness." (Thanks to Jolene F.)

Hard Up

Sometimes hardship can breed success as proved by the author J.K. Rowlings. Before her grand success of the Harry Potter series, she was a divorced mother with a 4-month-old child. While on welfare she spent her time in coffee shops writing her first novel as her daughter slept. Today, she is the highest grossing author of all time and reported to be worth more than the Queen of England. For many she is proof that our experiences do make us stronger. •
